Chinese Pineapple Chicken Recipes


DSC_0051I call this dish Pineapple chicken. It’s similar to lemon chicken, or sweet and sour chicken sans red food coloring. Once you make it you’ll be surprised how easy it is to mimic Chinese take-out food. Except I think it tastes fresher and a bit healthier than take-out. Serve it with a side of steamed white rice and some veggies. Be sure to marinate the chicken beforehand like I mention in the recipe; it makes the chicken tastier and more tender.

Ingredients for Chicken:

2 chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil

1/4 tsp. pepper
3 Tbsp. flour

DSC_0009Ingredients for Sauce:
